The Men Who Look For Injured Animals

In some countries they are treated as rural heroes. The UK has a long way to go. There is a small group of men dedicated to following up and dispatching injured deer and boar. They have specially trained dogs and now, thanks to Blaser, they have R8 Tracker rifles, specially designed for this kind of work.
